Mumbai: Former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal and his nephew Sameer was arrested on Monday evening by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with corruption cases lodged against him.
The duo requested the special PMLA court on Wednesday to grant them home-cooked food inside Arthur Road jail.The court partly allowed the application filed by Chhagan Bhujbal for home food and medicine.
In the courts order, the home food, mattresses, warm water, nebulizer and a chair and table would be provided to him by jail authorities.
The law & order situation has collapsed under Bhujbals’ political clout. Daylight robberies, armed attacks, chain-snatchings and setting of two- and four-wheelers on fire have become routine.
The ED had earlier attached two properties belonging to the Bhujbal family under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
The Enforcement Directorate on Monday attached a sugar mill and over 290 acres worth Rs.55 crore in Nashik in
connection with a money-laundering case against him.
The ED had on February 1 arrested Bhujbal’s nephew Sameer Bhujbal. Later last month, it questioned Bhujbal’s son Pankaj Bhujbal, a legislator.
